Came for the fries. Cooked In peanut oil just right. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It is a stand on the boardwalk so get in line and get the fries. Some people put vinegar on them which is available when you get the fries.

Of the many times I've been on the boardwalk, I could not understand why people would wait in line for French fries. They were great and worth it. Especially with the vinegar.

Omg if you are at the beach and on the boardwalk you have to get Thrashers. They are the best. You might have to wait in line but it is worth it. Get a large add salt and vinegar. One thing I must tell you, the sea birds live them also. Enjoy

They were good, no question. Interesting flavor when adding salt and vinegar. But are they deserving of their world famous hype? Not so sure. Competent fries and a great atmosphere to eat them in (the boardwalk), but they aren't spectacular. $8.25 for a medium. Good size for two people to snack on. Price was to be expected.

Limp greasy overcooked fries you'd fling out your car window if you were driving down the highway. Location.

Consistent and delicious! Line loves quickly. Lots of salt is a given and malt vinegar is available. Parking near the Boardwalk is a challenge in the summer but worth it!

What more can be said about Thrashers. We drove from Glen Burnie to OC just for a fix of Thrashers. Yes they were open and people waiting on Tuesday 12/27 for their fries

Had my Thrashers a couple days after Labor Day weekend and luckily didn't have any line to wait in, although they are worth the wait! They were perfectly done, crispy and hot. As always, you have to cover them in vinegar and salt....no ketchup needed :). See you next time!

The Thrasher French Fry is the ultimate summer (now all year experience). When you think of Ocean City, Maryland ...You think of Thrashers French Fries, then the Waves, Sand and Sun
